Acorn Production for 2002

Overall, acorn production was good this year, with red oaks leading the way and good white oak production in certain areas. Acorn production was up somewhat over last year and significantly over two years ago. Acorn production can be quite variable from year to year with crops varying from several hundred pounds per acre during an excellent year to almost no production in a poor year.
